Subject Re: Commiter access to Jenkins Sevrer
Date Fri, 05 Jan 2018 19:02:25 GMT
GitHub SSO allows the neat feature that login and permission can be
selected depending on the access rights a user has to a project. Somebody
with write access (committers) would be get different permissions than
somebody with only read access.

We could check back with Apache for SSO, but this would involve Apache
infra. We could put it up to a vote whether to use GitHub or Apache SSO.

In order to reproduce a build failure we have been thinking about changing
the in such a way that it can be run manually without Jenkins.
The setup I took over binds the Jenkins work directory into the docker
containers and uses a few hacks which are hard to reproduce locally. We
plan to reengineer this script to make it easier to run manually.
But making the AMI public is a good idea! We plan to make the whole
infrastructure code (based on Terraform) completely public - at the moment
it's in a private repository as it contains credentials, but they will be
moved to KMS soon. It would definitely be a good approach to just supply
the AMI so everybody could recreate the environment in their own account.

Well, login to the Jenkins server, I would imagine.

github or Apache SSO (does Apache support OAUTH?) seems like a good idea as
long as there's a way to not let everyone with a github account log in.

Access to actual slave machines could be more restricted, I imagine.

Eventually, a public current AMI for a build slave would be good in order
to reproduce build or test problems that can't be reproduced locally.
